Congratulating the winners, Mohammed Ahmed Al Mashani, executive manager – Business & Channel said, “It was wonderful to see a gathering of our account holders and prospective customers interested in opening new accounts with us. This indicates the popularity of this prize account scheme. Our intention is to encourage and reward savings among our valued customers by providing these attractive incentives. I would also like to wish all our customers best of luck for the upcoming draws.”
He added, “This account is based on the Islamic proﬁt sharing concept of Mudarabah. To follow their dreams, customers need to maintain a minimum balance of OMR100 in their accounts for 30 days. For every OMR100 balance, they get one chance to win, so the more they save, the greater their chances of winning.
